2. Los Angeles Chargers

This season, Chargers fans are hoping that health is on their side. Last year was difficult because of the health of Justin Herbert, having played through injury for the majority of the season. But, if he's healthy, this offense could compete for the no. 1 spot in all of football.

Herbert gets to throw the ball to Keenan Allen (also facing health question marks, as per usual), Mike Williams (also facing health question marks, as per usual) and rookie first-round pick Quentin Johnston. The team has one of the best all-around running backs in the game in Austin Ekeler, who is also a major threat in the passing game as well.

Even on defense, the Chargers have a ton of talent but injuries are always a question mark. It seems every year, injuries are the number one concern for the Chargers, even dating back to their time in San Diego. But, the fact is, this is an ultra-talented roster. Herbert should be set up for the best year of his career, so long as health remains on his side.

Right now, the Chargers look like a playoff team. Let's see how things unfold as the regular season begins.
